Scouting Report
Assets: Has great size for the center position. Is solid in his own end of the ice, and he also offers plenty of grit and determination. Is also pretty good on face-offs.
Flaws: Does not have a high level of skill, so he should be reduced to bottom-six forward duties at the National Hockey League level. Lacks consistency in the NHL.
Career Potential: Versatile, physical depth forward.
